“He worked very hard in those five months. I mean, it was almost a 24/7, 7 days a week job for him. He did it and grabbed the bull by the horns, so to speak, and he did a wonderful amount for our health department, ”said Topping.

According to Topping, Dr. Stefancic for months without a break and it’s time to take a break to spend quality time with his family. Rick Sabol will serve as Mercer County’s new health officer.
